Shrimp Scampi

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 pound linguine

4 tablespoons butter

2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions in salted water.

In a large skillet melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.

Remove from the heat; add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.

When the pasta is done, drain and put it back in the pot or a warmed pasta bowl. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss, and serve.
